"One of the most substantial and scholarly counterattacks against creationism to date....The myths which creationists present to the public as historical fact are systematically debunked....This carefully chosen collection should appeal to informed general readers"--Library Journal. "One of the strongest, most enlightened sources for understanding the present dispute and its dangerous portents"--Kirkus Reviews. In this volume, Stephen Jay Gould, Isaac Asimov, and others provide a powerful rebuttal to "Creation Science," and offer insights into the teaching of science.

Industry Reviews

"One of the most substantial and scholarly counterattacks against creationism to date.... Point by point, in chapter after chapter, the myths which creationists present to the public as historical facts are systematically debunked and the rhetorical devices which cloud debate on evolution are carefully exposed.... This carefully chosen collection should appeal to informed general readers."--Library Journal "One of the strongest, most enlightened sources for understanding the present dispute and its dangerous portents."--Kirkus Reviews
